The word angel comes from both the Hebrew hammalak and the Greek angelos which simply means “messenger.” Anyone who the Lord chooses can be a messenger at any time, whether that person is human or of the Elohim [the heavenly hosts (spirits)]. If you are spreading the pure, unadulterated seed of Jesus, you are a messenger.
Something to ponder: the antichrist could use the statues and laws of Moses to subjugate the entire world. Jesus said, “For false Christs and false prophets will appear and perform great signs and miracles to deceive even the elect—if that were possible.” The elect would not be fooled by the current religious system, but if the Mosaic system was installed and later twisted (just as the Pharisees did prior to Jesus’ arrival), then they would have a tougher time identifying it.
Shouldn’t we both rebuke the adversary and ask Him to block our own thoughts before we pray to hear Him?
Psalm 29:2 (Tanakh) Render unto HaShem (THE NAME, THE AUTHORITY, THE POWER, the Self-existing, the Merciful One, the Jealous One) the honor that is due His name (power, authority). Bow (prostrate) before Him in the beauty of holiness.
The word name is onoma in the Greek, also meaning authority, power, or cause.
1 Corinthians 1:29 That no flesh shall glory (stand) in the Holy of Holies.
Worship (physical) – kneeling, bowing, face to the floor, lying prone (face down)
The famous sinner’s prayer is a starting point, not salvation itself. Salvation is an ongoing process that ends at natural death.
In the end, we go before His Throne alone (Romans 14:11-12). No church, no religion, no person’s words or works can get you in His favor for that time. We are called to work out our own salvation (Philippians 2:12, 2 Corinthians 7:15) through Him and Him alone (Psalm 138:8, Philippians 1:6, 1 Corinthians 1:8, 1 Corinthians 3:13).
Does everyone just pick and choose what parts of the Bible they choose to believe? This is a lack of trust in God’s Power to give them the answer.
The popular phrase “the armor of God” is also ta hopla tou photos in Greek, meaning the armor (equipment) or weapons of light (Romans13:12). A friend of mine thinks “weapons of light” sounds a lot more direct and engaging.
Parts of the OT have not been translated. The experts claim the original meanings were lost over time. Sorry, but I refuse that excuse. What are they trying to hide?
To ended or amend a contract in ancient Israel required two or more witnesses and driving a nail through it. Is that not what Jesus did? (Colossians 2:13-14, Ephesians 2:14-16, 1 Peter 2:24)
His body = the old contract
His blood = the ink and the writing
The cross = the item in which the contract was nailed to
Everyone at the crucifixion = the witnesses (the four books of the Evangel)
Adam’s body was a creation from a creation (dirt); Eve’s was a creation from a creation (Adam) from another creation(dirt). More evidence YHWH set this whole thing in motion on purpose.
When will believers realize they have no control over this world, but through Christ? Why continue to use the adversary’s devices (i.e., economics, politics) to try to control the adversary?
The first fast was when God told Adam and Eve to eat of any tree in the garden except from the tree of knowledge of good and evil (the tree of spiritual death).
